The history of electro-therapeutics may be divided into four periods: 1, the period before the invention of the electrical and jar; 2, from the invention of this machine to the discovery of galvanism; 3, from the discovery of galvanism to that of ; 4, from this last discovery to the present time." Electrostatic Motors: Their History, Types, and Principles of Operation".
Galvano-caus-ty, as this operation is called, is employed for extirpating and abolishing tumors and diseased growths. These were single disk machines, using disks with embedded sectors that were accessed at the edges.

In electro-therapeutics two forms of current are used: the direct battery current, and the induced, electro-magnetic, magneto-electric, or faradic currents. When the cervical portion Electricity in electro-therapeutics. electrically insulated, dilatation followed by contraction of the pupils occurs, the pulsations of the heart are less frequent, and the tension of the arterial walls is diminished.
The attempt to employ electricity in dates as far back as the knowledge of the phenomena of electricity itself. The first machine used a silk ribbon bought at a five and dime store as the charge transport belt.
About this time a German named Kratzenstein is said to have restored the use of a paralyzed finger by electricity, and experiments were made in the under the direction of De Hacn with considerable success. Consumers were offered many ways in which to utilize the new marvel of electricity at home.
The continuous current sent through the splanchnic nerves increases the peristaltic movements of the intestines, while faradization diminishes them. The main developers were Johan Smit and Dhiradj Djairam. In 1866, the or was developed. The continuous current sent through the splanchnic nerves increases the peristaltic movements of the intestines, while faradization diminishes them.
The [ ] possessed higher efficiency than earlier friction machines.
